Type of breach: 

Eighty-five hundred W-2 forms including other workers' tax information such as Social Security numbers and salaries were sent out to employees. Fewer than 1,100 employees had their information exposed.  The company suspects that their internal processing center may have misaligned the forms and caused them to be cut in the wrong place. Workers were asked not to open their W-2s, but many had already done so before the notification.
